When you turn on the key, a relay engages for a few seconds and heats up the glow plugs. It sounds like the relay is not passing current, which could indicate either corroded contacts, or a bad relay all together. I would guess the former since your panel light indicates the relay is functioning correctly. I would suggest replacing the relay, or possibly if you feel comfortable with it, disassemble the relay and clean the contacts.

this sounds like the glow plug relay is u/s or stuck, locate the relay in your fues box and give it a tap or remove it and replace it, it might have just come loose, if this does not work it will need replacing...hope that helps
